Christian School Files Lawsuit After Forfeit Over Trans Player Results in Ban

via YouTube

The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) has filed a lawsuit against Vermont officials on behalf of Mid Vermont Christian School (MVCS), which forfeited a girls basketball game against a school with a transgender student.

The lawsuit alleges that MVCS was subsequently barred from future tournaments and removed from the Vermont Principal’s Association, claiming religious discrimination and hostility.

The complaint argues that the school and its students are being irreparably harmed by being denied participation in sports and academic competitions due to their religious beliefs, and asserts that the state is unconstitutional in forcing private, religious schools to adhere to its views as a condition for participation.

“This civil rights action seeks to protect a Christian school and its students and parents from unconstitutional religious discrimination and hostility,” the complaint says.

“The State is entitled to its own views, but it is not entitled, nor is it constitutional, to force private, religious schools across the state to follow that orthodoxy as a condition to participating in Vermont’s tuitioning program and the State’s athletic association,” the complaint added.

MVCS’s coach and ADF senior counsel have both criticized the discrimination against Christian schools and families based on their religious beliefs.

“No one, including our student athletes, should have opportunities taken away from them because of their religious beliefs,” coach Chris Goodwin stated.

“Vermont has repeatedly discriminated against Christian schools and their families for following their religious beliefs,” ADF senior counsel Ryan Tucker pressed.

“Put simply, Mid Vermont Christian School believes that boys are boys and girls are girls. They have been punished for this belief. No school or parent should have to change their beliefs to participate in athletics or a state tuitioning program.”
